This wall is so stunning ..... it is the ultimate "exclamation point" for any room !!!!

 

London antiques dealer Linda Gumb framed these divine vintage decorative patterns ....... they are part of a collection of pages from a sales catalogue of 1930's French wallpaper. The  patterns are hand painted on paper and include any co-ordinating boarder prints.

 

I love instant "accessoration" gratification and this certainly fits the bill!!!!

Italian designer Antonello Fusé created this collection, Abitudini, a series of hangers made from secondhand chairs. Cutting off the backs at various points, he then inserts a simple metal curve ....... resulting in fabulous hangers that are available from Italian design company Resign!!!!!

 

Remember "hanging your coat on the back of your chair" ......
these hangers take that thought to a new level!!!!!!
